I told myself it wouldn’t happen, and then I did it: I fell in love with a dress $500 overbudget — the Pronovias Urdiel. I’ve been looking everywhere for this dress (no smaller than an 8), and I’ve found the Ugalde on Tradesy. They look similar, but I just don’t know about buying on Tradesy. What if I have a horrible experience? What if I go overbudget on the new dress and regret it? What if it’s not “the dress”?
Yes, I’m a bride who’s tried on about 100 dresses, and the Urdiel has come closest to being “the one.”
Has anyone worn it, tried it on, have pics, experiences with it, own it and want to sell? Thoughts on the budget issue? For some reason there are almost no real bride photos of the Urdiel online!!

@aekc: Can you see if Pronovias is having a trunk show near you anytime soon? I got a 10% discount on any dress purchased at the trunk show and a free veil. It wasn’t a that designer, but trunk shows usually offer a discount if you buy that day.

I haven’t tried it or seen it in person, but it’s beautiful!

I tried it on at Glamour Bridal in Leichardt. I ended up with a similar dress…the Pronovias Urda. I loved all of them, Urdiel, Ugalde…they all have that fitted mermaid shape and that lovely scalloped lace edge..but Urda was IT for me 🙂

@Treeline – Thanks for that suggestion — I’m going to start looking for trunk shows!
@islandbride808 – Congrats on the Urda! Did you notice any differences between the Urdiel and the Ugalde? I can’t find the Ugalde anywhere, and they look like practically the same dress — would love to see pics or just get feedback!!

How much is this dress over your budget? You could see if a store would sell you a sample, or I second the suggestion to see if Pronovias is having a sample sale or trunk show near to you? Alternatively the JA 8530 is quite similar..maybe worth trying?

I love Ugalde!! I’ve tried it on and it’s so beautiful. But the bridal shop didn’t have Urdiel to try it on.

aekc: I have the Pronovias Urdiel in a size 8 (brand new) that I am looking to sell for $1700 (retails $2200 before tax). I purchased it originally for my wedding but I never got to wear it. This dress is hands down the most beautiful dress I’ve tried on. It was my final pick after trying on over 100 dresses…yes, 100 dresses. It was a choice between the Dakota which about three of my close friends already wore for their weddings. This dress cost me a bit more but definitely worth it as the neckline was already sweetheart shaped. This dress was will make any bride drop dead gorgeous.
